Caselace is a a new mobile phone or MP3 player case that wraps your headphone cables securely

How long does it take you to untangle and remove the knots from your headphone cable before you can use them? With the new Caselace design it will take you no time at all.

Caselace is a mobile phone case with hooks or “wibbles” along the outside edge that enables you to easily wrap your headphone cable directly around your phone still allowing you to text and make phone calls.

Caselace, which was founded by three partners, one of whom is Phil Champ of Champ Industrial Design who carried out the design of the case, was recently launched as a Kickstarter campaign.

Engineer Your Future opened at the Science Museum in London on 17 December 2014. This free exhibition will run for three years

Wondering what to do with the kids during the Christmas break? Why not take a trip into London and visit the Science Museum’s latest exhibition Engineer Your Future.

Aimed at 11 to 15 year olds, the hope is that this interactive exhibition with the hashtag #EngineerYour Future will inspire and engage young people with engineering.

It reveals compelling stories of the women and men who work in engineering today. Engineers developing faster racing yachts, safer building design for areas at risk of tsunamis and smarter artificial hands are featured in a short film (which is pasted below) whilst the cutting-edge prototypes on display illustrate how engineers improve and test their ideas.

Quick guide: How to 3D print your Minecraft models. For the kids. Honest…

So. A bit of Christmas (or whatever you chosen end of year festivity) fun. Minecraft. If you’ve got kids, you’re probably familiar with it, and if you’re familiar with it then you’re probably aware that it’s THE thing that the kids are playing in recent times.

If you’re not familiar with it, it’s a combination of a construction game, where the player mines for resources, combines these resources to build items to subsequently build other items.

I’m talking from raw basic materials. Coal, wood and iron ore gives you a forge. The forge gives you steel to build armour and weapons. And those weapons are used to fight zombies. Or something.

The sleek Fujitsu Celsius H730 15.6-inch mobile workstation was up for grabs

In September, DEVELOP3D and its sister publication AEC magazine teamed up with Fujitsu and Nvidia to bring you a competition with prizes of epic proportions.

The three winners of this Fujitsu Celsius mobile workstation competition were drawn out of a rather large hat earlier this month.

Congratulations go to William Campbell, product designer at a US-based green energy storage start up and David Williamson, principal design engineer at Linn Products Ltd, who will both take home a Fujitsu Celsius H730 mobile workstation, powered by Nvidia Quadro K1100M graphics.

Cute video of Derby the dog running on his new 3D Printed prosthetics to warm your heart

Tis the season to be jolly, and there’s few things in the world to put more joy in the heart than seeing a happy little dog bounding around for the first time on prosthetic legs.

This has been enabled by 3D Systems, and its technology, using its 3D scanning, design and 3D printing tools to fit Derby the dog with custom prostheses.

Derby was born with a congenital deformity characterised by small forearms and no front paws, and while always cheerful, he was, until now, only able to get around on soft surfaces. Hard surfaces, like sidewalks, cause severe abrasions on his front extremities.

Excavator simulation for rock lumps, where EDEM provides realistic data on the mass loaded in the bucket and the force against the bucket

DEM Solutions has announced new EDEM co-simulation solutions with three leading Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) software packages; MathWorks Simulink, Siemens LMS Virtual.Lab Motion and MSC Adams.

The tools allow manufacturers of heavy equipment to gain better insight into machine-material interaction, such as the capability to model and visualise the dynamics of equipment movement and examine how loads exerted by bulk materials are distributed throughout the mechanical system.

The EDEM-MBD solutions make use of the EDEM Coupling Interface – a programmable interface that enables bi-directional communication between EDEM and other codes.

Visionary Render software allows users to experience a real-time, interactive and immersive virtual reality environment created from huge 3D datasets

Last year, virtual reality (VR) company Virtalis launched Visionary Render, an advanced visualisation package for the CAD community. Following beta testing, new release v1.1 is now shipping.

Specifically aimed at engineering communities, the software allows users to look at their data in a high level of detail whether working alone, in small groups, or collaborating with distant colleagues in a common virtual environment.
